. attorneys for inappropriate reasons. the department of justice when president obama came in, had a respected career u.s. attorney who was put in charge of investigating this, we're here nearly five years later, and the justice department refuses to release that report because it exonerates attorney general gonzalez and the bush white house of any attempt to bring politics to bear on the removal of nine u.s. attorneys for what were good and justifiable reasons. >> if they won't do that when it's an issue involving the previous administration, because they don't want to remove the cloud over attorney general gonzalez over those of us who were accused of being involved in a political effort to remove u.s. attorneys, do you have any confidence at all the attorney general would appoint a special prosecutor that would get to the bottom of this? no, i don't. >> the wrongfulness of failure to release that can't drive us completely. and the problem is, there's so many allegations of political political overtones in this. congressman levin submitted in washington post. but there's so many al

terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. president obama is advocating his responsibility as commander in chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. the president does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another count

o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the biggest failure of the obama administration that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. in order for more than 300 million americans to have a chance at prosperity, you need a vibrant economy. at this point the usa does not have one. that is now on president obama. as you may know, the president's economic vision is focused on so-called economic justice, giving help to americans who don't have very much, providing vast entitlements means big spending and taxation. the president doesn't seem to trust the capitalist civic, instituting new regulations in the marketplace, inhibiting business expansion. the social justice economic plan is failing. the u.s. economy is stagnant, thus quality of life is going down in this country. here are the facts to back that statement up. 7 out of 8 jobs created during the obama administration have been part time jobs. 54% of american workers make less than $30,000 a year. when mr. obama took office, he averaged unemployment paid to an individual was 20 weeks. now it's 37 weeks. number of americ

has been too much information provided by the obama administration. how have officials you have spoken to responded to that charge? theer: is difficult, criticism. i think it is hard to find merit with a lot of this criticism. the state department, since the lockerbie bombing, the pan am bombing in 1988, has been operating under a no double standards rule, meaning that goes tonformation that official american employees and diplomats serving abroad needs to be or has to be shared with the american public. if they have a specifically credible threat that can close an embassy, they are required to share it with the public. meritot really see much in the criticism. i know that some people have been complaining that the amount of specificity and the location identification of the closed embassies may have tipped off or did tipoff potential attackers and may have alerted them to how their communications were intercepted or compromised, but i think that in the interest of safety in, official americans and private americans were traveling, the state department is operating with an abundance of
